Camp Jotoni Capital Campaign

The Arc of Somerset County has been providing summer camp and recreation programs to children and adults with disabilities for over 40 years. Since then, Camp Jotoni has opened its grounds to individuals with special needs and their families each spring to share the excitement of our unique camp experience.

Our goal for Camp Jotoni is to have our camp facility opened for year round respite programs. Respite programs offer parents a much needed break from the daily care of their child/young adult. In order to have this service, we must continue to raise funds to help support new insulated buildings and facilities that can be operated in all four seasons.

Camp Jotoni Fundraising Cabin Renovation Update

As the 2018 year comes to a close, The Arc of Somerset County and Camp Jotoni are so very proud to share an update on our Camp Jotoni Capital Campaign! This year we have made great progress towards meeting our goal to create updated facilities that will meet the unique needs of our campers.

To date, we have:
1. Raised over $471,000
2. Hosted our first “Clubs for Cabins” Golf Outing in September generating over $90K
3. Solidified financing options with local banks.
4. Plans to begin breaking ground for the first TWO cabins in 2019!

The funds that were raised have made significant impact toward the first phase of obtaining the means needed to upright the first 2 cabins of 4 planned.

Phase 2:
In the coming 2019 calendar year, The Arc Foundation of Somerset County will be continuing the outreach for support to help fulfill the funding for Cabins 3 &4. With each cabin built, our special needs children and adults and their families will benefit for utilizing Camp Jotoni’s respite programs 12 months of the year, respite care will expand beyond the 9 week summer, and overnight respite will be available more frequently for our growing list of registered special needs families.

Phase 3:
Upon cabins 3 & 4 completion, we will focus on to the construction of “The Lodge”, which will host Camp Jotoni’s cafeteria, classrooms, indoor activity room, after school program and camp counselor and nurse offices. We look forward to celebrating this next step in the history of Camp Jotoni’s renovation plan and hope that you will join us at our official groundbreaking ceremony in 2019!
